Catherine Hamilton, New York, Jigger Shah discussed on The Energy Gang

The Energy Gang


With extremely attractive, entry rates, but that would balloon to really extraordinarily extraordinary levels, if they didn't get paid off in a certain amount of time and just like the housing crisis. This system was built on the idea that taxi medallion prices would never. Fall. And then, of course, incomes ride hailing in this whole system, collapses, and thousands of drivers are unable to pay back their loans, their lives have been ruined. We've seen a spate of many suicides in the taxi industry in New York. It's been very sad. And this, this was just a really great piece of journalism as a two part series, and it sends caused a bunch of investigations in New York, and it's a reminder that, you know, these stories are just far more complicated than they appear because, of course, Uber and lift causes major problems, but they exposed and exacerbated this much bigger financial system underpinning, the taxi network. Yeah, I talked to a driver in Chicago, taxi driver, who said sort of the same thing that he bought this really expensive medallion, and it's worth nothing now, that's it for the show. You know, we don't ask for subsidies.
